The beer Cuvée des Jacobins is unblended old lambic, aged for at least 18 months in (French) oak barrels from the cognac region. These oak barrels are called ’Foeders’ in Dutch. It has a robust character but is beautiful and sophisticated with a full body and overtones of vanilla, dried cherry, stone fruit and cocoa. It is a complex, beautiful sour beer.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Bottle. I love a good sour and this is a great one. Pours a beautiful mahogany with a light head around the edges. Smell is rich and complex with cherry, tobacco, chocolate and more. Taste does not have the sweetness that the aroma might lead you to believe. It’s impressively sour with just a slight touch of sweet -- exactly what I want from a Flanders Red.

Tap at the Bad Apple, Chicago. Poured a clear dark amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is citrus fruit sour. The flavour is medium spit with an acid citrus weak vinegar like palate with a tiny hint of barnyard.

Cuvée des Jacobins is een 100 % foederbier. Dit is een onversneden lambiek, en heeft 18 maanden gerijpt op eikenhouten vaten. Het bier heeft een robuust karakter maar heeft een mooie en gesofisticeerde inhoud met een afdronk van vanille, gedroogde kersen en cacao. Dit is een complex, maar zeer gebalanceerd zuur bier.

adamah (214) - California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Light vanilla and fruit aromas. It pours an opaque deep red color with no head. The flavor is very tart with moderate sweetness on the finish; like a sour cherry with a hint of vanilla. The body is medium, mostly still and leaves some lingering acidity on the tongue. Very good, very sour and very complex flavor

BeerGolem (796) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle 330 ml. Wow, that certainly is a sour one! Pours very dark red (almost brown), with small off white head, quickly disappearing. Aroma is of cherries and some balsamics. Amaing (and a little overwhelming) sourness, along with a touch of sweetness. Explosive.
